Alana
From North Hollywood
IT Graduate

“In total, it took me about eight months from when I started Calbright, to finding a new job and getting my first raise. Calbright’s IT Support program gave me the opportunity I needed to get the job I always wanted.” 

Brandi
From Los Angeles
CRM Platform Administration Student

“I really like the modules. I really like the flow. It’s easy to digest, and it’s fun. I work nights, so at night is when I really get a chance to sneak away and study. And I actually want to get on the computer and read for class.”

Shukria
From San Francisco
Cybersecurity graduate

“Calbright’s instructors and counselors were always available to provide valuable emotional and academic support. I wasn’t doing it alone, and now that I’ve got my cybersecurity certificate, I’m looking forward to finding a job where I will gain experience and use my knowledge. Calbright’s career coach and career services staff are helping with that, too. I feel blessed.”

Hector
From San Pedro
IT student

“My experience with Calbright so far has been amazing. I’ve already gotten a better job. I left my administrative assistant job for a company that works in robotics. I didn’t believe that I was qualified, but Calbright’s Career Services helped me make my resume appealing to the kind of company I wanted to work for.”

Deborah
From Madera County
Medical Coding Student

“My experience with Calbright so far has been amazing. It is a user-friendly program and they have provided all the necessary books and manuals for studying. I have had routine follow-up phone meetings with student advocates wanting to know how my studies are going and how they can improve my experience.”

Tuition-Free Programs

Our online community college is currently tuition free for residents of California, over the age of 18, with a high school diploma or GED.

Certificate in Less Than One Year

We measure progress by the skills you’ve mastered — not by how many hours you’ve spent in the classroom — so you can move at the speed that’s right for you. Students can complete their certificate in 8-10 months (4-6 for the CRM program) with an average weekly commitment of 6-12 hours.

Academic and Career Support

In addition to tutoring and academic support, our career services team can help you prepare for your job search, from practicing interviews and refining your resume to virtual events with employers and industry professionals.
